Jantar Mantar in Jaipur is one of the largest and the best preserved astronomical observatories in the world – with UNESCO’s awarding World Heritage Monument status in 2012
Built in the early 18th century these large masonry structures are striking to behold astronomical instruments, with a high degree of accuracy.
This sound & light show is a tribute to the ingenuity of Raja Sawai Jai Singh II, who engaged himself with such scientifically oriented adventures, even in politically turbulent times.
The episodes narrate the making of Jantar Mantar and the need felt by Raja Jai Singh to shift the Kachwaha capital from Amber to the new capital city of Jaipur. The episodes also include stories about important astronomical instruments through graphical imagery, scintillating light effects and evocative music.
A multi-lingual Digital Audio Guide is also available at this monument during the day, to understand the working of the various instruments in a leisured, private manner.
